In 2009, then state Senator Jeff Smith (D - St. Louis) was caught lying to federal investigators and sentenced to twelve months in prison (he served eight). That same year, Rod Jetton, Missouri's former Republican speaker of the House, fell from grace when he was accused of beating a woman during a kinky night of BDSM sex.
Now, both men are out of politics and attempting to restore their names. Smith is writing a book. Meanwhile, Jetton is working for an engineering firm and recently wrote online about his rise and fall from politics.
Last night both men got together for a video chat with a website called The Recovering Politician to discuss their glory days and their current lives. As you can see from Smith's stretched out V-neck, it seems he has fully embraced the freelance writer's attire.
